1. Save Money!
Travel Agents have access to the myriad of airfares, hotel rates, package tours, and cruise vacations worldwide and are Internet savvy. Accompanied by strong working relationships with travel suppliers, often the best deal lies with the people who know where to look.
2. Save Time and Trouble!
Agents clarify the fine print on cancellation penalties and restrictions thereby preventing headaches later on for travelers unaware of the terms and conditions of their purchase.
Agents provide one-stop shopping for all your travel arrangements. This includes travel insurance, passport and visa applications.
Travel agents understand that repeat customers are the best form of advertising. That is why agents make them-selves available and respond quickly to customer needs.
Agents know how to interact with suppliers and have the proper contacts to get things done. Agents have more buying power.
6. Personal Relationships
Like a good doctor, attorney, or accountant, your travel agent knows you, your lifestyle, and tastes. Armed with this knowledge and statistical information stored confidentially through state-of-the-art technology, an agent becomes a trusted advisor.
Travel agents stay abreast of the most current promotions and timely industry news so that they can translate and explain what it all means to you.
